In the custom power search 'Search Phrase' text box, enter:

program.title = 'Nova'
AND channel.callsign = 'PBS'

assuming your channel callsign is PBS. Adjust the advanced options to taste.

If you instead wanted to search for all occurences of programme titles
containing Nova, even in the middle of a title, you could use:

program.title LIKE 'Nova'
AND channel.callsign = 'PBS'
